An overnight fire in Lexington has police on the search for a male suspect.

Firefighters said they were called to the fire was in an unoccupied apartment building on Hill Rise Drive just before 12:30 a.m.

Fire officials said someone had intentionally set flame to some paper. They said the fire was out before they got there, and hadn't damaged the property.

A witness told police they saw someone leaving the area, which is who police are searching for.

It wasn't the first late-night call the fire department has had in the area--they estimated 20 last year, and four since May 2013.
